Artist's Description

In Nova Scotia’s south shore community of Lunenburg, you can tell the buildings belonging to the Adams and Knickle fishing business by their hey-look-at-me shade of red.

Formed in 1897 by bookkeeper Harry S. Adams, former sea captain Alexander Knickle and their partner William Arenburg, the fledgling outfitting firm acquired an interest in several schooners and became active in the fishery and trade with the West Indies. After a decade in business, Arenburg retired, leaving the partnership of Adams and Knickle whose business under that name has continued to this day. The company maintains a small but successful fleet, deep sea trawling for scallops.
